I would if it was redone by a new narrator.
Mirron's mispronunciations and extra sibilants are so distracting. One that kept gnawing at me was cryo being pronounced like Cairo.
I am only about an hour into it. So far, the answer is no.
I usually listen while I am driving. Because of that, I can't give full concentration to plot development, character development and trying to make sure I hear the words correctly.
For that reason, I love audiobooks that come in series. I feel like I come to know the characters. When I start a new book in a series that I have already been reading, if the enunciation is good, I don't have to concentrate on that very hard. The same is true for character development. I already know the characters and a really good narrator can let me know who is speaking by their vocal inflections, accents, etc.
Combine the fact that this is a new book in a series where I have to learn all about the characters, the gist of the back story and the the difficulty in listening to a less than stellar narrator and it gets pretty bad, pretty fast.
